The Area Office on Aging of Northwestern Ohio has elected Justin Moor as its new President/Chief Executive Officer. Moor, who has been serving as the organization’s interim president since January of last year, is now officially replacing the retired president, Billie Johnson.
The organization has not had a new president since Johnson first took the position in 1974 when the company was first created.
Moor, a Northwest Ohio native, has been in the organization since 2007 and was promoted plenty of times during his 17 year career, eventually reaching the vice president of planning and development. As vice president, Moor worked with partner organizations to help secure $15 million in grant funding for the creation of affordable housing opportunities for 120 older northwest Ohioans.
Moor has not only served with The Area Office on Aging of Northwestern Ohio but has also served with Direction Home, LLC, Northwest Ohio PACE, Inc., Anne Grady Services and Toledo Club Toastmasters. Moor has also done volunteer work with the Catholic Diocese of Toledo.
Chairman of the Board of the Area Office on Aging of Northwest Ohio Bill Harris said, “We, the Board of Directors and staff the Area Office on Aging of Northwestern Ohio, are excited and overjoyed about the selection of Justin Moor to lead us in our quest to serve the needs of senior citizens during such a critical time as this. As this agency faces the challenges ahead in our 10-county service area, I predict there are three things that will drive Mr. Moor’s success: his passion for the age 60+ generation, coupled with his firm, but sensitive leadership style over his staff and his love and compassion for his community.”
The organization does its work using an annual budget of $33 million, as well as 185 staff members as well as 530 volunteers.
